Maloney is granted this fellowship under the Simons Foundation division of Life Sciences with an aim to advance research in the origins of life, microbial oceanography, and microbial ecology and evolution. This award will support her proposed research “Tracking phytoplankton metabolism with lipid isotope ratios.” As an oceanographer, marine microbial ecologist, and biogeochemist she is interested in how microbes and their biomolecules respond to change and the development of tools that help characterize microbial metabolism in modern and past environments.
Maloney is a postdoctoral research associate in the Zhang research laboratory and collaborates closely with the Ward research laboratory at the Department of Geosciences, Princeton University. Please join the department in congratulating her at this time of recognition.
